  • Young Worker Injury Factors

  • Young Worker Injury Factors

    Employment of young workers can have many benefits for businesses and for young workers. However, the potential for serious injury and death must be recognized and addressed by everyone involved. Employers, educators, parents, and young workers may not be aware of safety and health laws designed to protect young workers on the job.Safety and health regulations alone cannot control or eliminate all the factors that may contribute to risk of injury for young workers. On the basis of case reports presented in this Alert and other incidents, NIOSH concludes that one or more of the following circumstances are commonly present when young workers are injured or killed at work:

      Young workers may not be trained to per form assigned tasks safely.

      Young workers may be assigned to per form incidental tasks for which they have no training or experience, or they may take it upon themselves to perform these tasks.

      Young workers may not be adequately supervised.

      Young workers lack the experience and maturity needed to recognize and deal with injury hazards. More specifically, they may not yet have a sufficient understanding of work processes to recognize hazardous situations.

      Young workers may not have the training or experience to handle emergencies or injuries.

      Young workers, their employers, and parents may disregard or be unaware of child labor laws that specify the jobs and the hours that young workers may not work.
